Cat Medley: Funnies, Cuteness Galore, Mourning And Loss

We searched through the most up-voted cat pictures on the popular subreddit r/cats, this week, and we decided to share them all with you!

The pictures all have one thing in common, and that is, of course, cats. However, that's where the similarities end. 

There are images of hilarious cats being hilarious, adorable-ness (naturally), and mourning and loss. We wanted to take a moment to appreciate the beauty of all these cats and remember those who have recently left us, they may be gone but never forgotten.

Wuhan Officially Bans Eating Wild Animals

This. Is. Amazing. 

This is exactly what needed to happen and has officially happened! And Wuhan took it even a step further, the Chinese city is to become a 'wildlife sanctuary' where virtually all hunting of wild animals is banned... well, with the exception of measures for "scientific research, population regulation, monitoring of epidemic diseases and other special circumstances".

But still, we consider this to be a huge step in the right direction. 

Wuhan, the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic announced the ban on May 20th, 2020, and as part of the ban, the city introduced stringent controls on the breeding of all wild animals, prohibiting any to be reared for food, CBS reported.

While the origins of the pandemic are still under investigation, one of the suspected sources is the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in the city which included a live animal section reportedly selling more than 30 species of animals including live wolf pups, golden cicadas, scorpions and civets. China closed the market in January.

Humane Society International's China policy specialist, Dr Peter Li, said: "Wuhan's ban on wildlife consumption is extremely welcome as a clear recognition that the public health risk of zoonotic disease spread via the wildlife trade must be taken very seriously if we are to avoid another pandemic.

-

There will however be no less severe of a disease risk from wildlife consumption in five years' time, so anything short of a permanent and comprehensive ban is still a risk too far. Wuhan becomes the fourth city in mainland China to show such leadership, but we now need cities and countries across the world to step up to the plate and shut down the dangerous wildlife trade."

Couple Turns Their Home Into a Mini Art Gallery For Their Injured And Bored Cat

There's no doubt that the long lockdown has brought out the best in people's creativity. 

We've read about the Piggenheim Museum and the printable kit for geckos.    

But this time it's the cat's turn.  

The stand-up comedian, Jake Lambert, and Jessica Atkins are the proud parents to three-year-old cat Richard Parker. 

Poor Richard is currently housebound due to a misfortunate foot injury. The couple wanted to cheer up their moggy a bit while in lockdown, so they came up with an idea to turn their house into a cat-sized art gallery.

Jake told Metro.co.uk: "Richard Parker isn't currently allowed out because he injured his foot. He seemed bored and so were we. We thought we could all do with some entertainment. All cats require a lot of stimulation, and we thought he might enjoy taking in some culture".

Adorable Dolphin Brings Humans Gifts From The Bottom Of The Ocean

That's it, we're moving down to Australia so we can hang out with Mystique, the humpback dolphin from Tin Can Bay on Queensland's Cooloola Coast.

Mystique is a unique pod who had recently developed quite a unique quirk -- a habit of bringing volunteers at the Barnacles Café and Dolphin Feeding centre an array of items each day! Apparently, this unusual habit began during the coronavirus pandemic while the tourists were staying home. 

Mystique is a 29-year-old male dolphin who has often displayed giving behavior but not to this extent.  Dolphin feeding volunteer Lyn McPherson said, "One male dolphin brings in objects on his rostrum, or beak, and then he carefully presents them to us." 

She says they reward him with some fish, "We haven't trained him, but he has trained us to do this."He gets under it [and] if he drops it too far out, or we say 'come on, that's not good enough', then he gets underneath it and brings it to us."The items have included bottles, big bits of timber, shells, and wood, which are brought in on his beak."We swear he has a collection waiting to bring to us," Ms McPherson said.

Since we've been closed to the public he has been doing it more and more. Sometimes he will bring 10, one at a time, and he will line them up as he has to get fish."

Now, that's a smart dolphin.

We all do it. That little shriek of "AWWW da baby!", whenever we see a baby animal. So teeny tiny and perfect. Some scientists have even said that baby animals pull on our heartstrings because we are pretty much programmed to protect human babies... (Not to mention that baby animals are just so cute!)

Well, look what the cat dragged in... Sorry, we had to.

Honestly, we were worried for a moment in the beginning there but it turns out the duck is completely fine so we were able to exhale that "phew" we were holding in.

Internet Helps Student Find Their Cat, After Parents Secretly Gave it Away

Oh man, so many things wrong with this and so much anxiety! Over the past week, one college student and Redditor, nexerxe, shared some disturbing news that rattled the animal-loving community... The Redditor's parents gave away the student's cat, Spotty, without telling them about it. 

How heartbreaking to find out your beloved pet was given away without you even knowing? We can't imagine. Unfortunately, that's what had happened. 

But our love for our pets is strong, so nexerxe decides to hunt Spotty down and with the help of the internet, they were able to track her down. Nexerxe then processed to set up a GoFundMe campaign to raise the funds needed to re-adopt Spotty. Ten selfless people chipped in to help raise the money needed so this broke college student can be reunited with their cat. 

We are so thrilled this messed up story has a happy ending! We have a soft spot in our hearts for those who will do anything for their furry friends.
